    Outreach

    Represent MCBC at your favorite events, like Bike To Work Day, The Fairfax Festival, the Marin Century and Biketoberfest! Outreach is the most important way to get others interested in the programs and projects that make Marin a great place to bike. It’s also a great way to meet new people who share your passion for cycling!

    Office Tasks

    Behind the scenes, MCBC volunteers keep the office operating smoothly by helping with mailings, data entry, compiling new-member packets, filing, archiving newspaper articles, graphic design for special event pieces, writing articles, and office cleanup. Let us know if you have a few weekday hours to spare to help us in this very important way.

    MCBC provides free valet bike parking throughout Marin County at key community events, offering cyclists the opportunity to have fun at events while avoiding the traffic congestion and parking hassles.
